Spider Pest Control Method:
There are more than 35,000 species of spiders in the world and a few thousand of these can be found right here in Australia. Spiders come in wide ranges of size and colour, but are easily recognised by their 8 legs. Spiders are often beneficial in the environment because they eat many types of insects, including those that are pests.

If there is a build-up of spiders in or around your property this is generally because a pest treatment has not been done at the property for a long period of time.

It is important to note that not all spider treatments are the same and your pest control consultant will discuss with you what spiders you are having an issue with:

Webbing spiders

Red back spiders and other webbing spiders give themselves away, due to the web presence and are normally easier to treat than ground spiders.

Red back or white tail spiders

If you are getting spiders internally, we suggest fumigation. This is normally done with a product called Pestigas, which is made from a natural insecticide, Pyrethrum.

The general rule with spiders is, that you have to spray a spider directly in order eradicate them. The fumigation is able to get into places the normal spray will not such as under couches, behind heavy or hard to move cabinets and cluttered rooms.

The Gas is safe around electrical appliances.

Protecting your home…..

• Seal cracks, crevices or gaps in sliding doors, window screens and around pipes where cockroaches may enter
• Repair any leaking taps as cockroaches need water to survive
• Wash your dishes and pack food away after meals.
• Clean up crumbs and spills immediately
• Keep food containers sealed and don’t leave dirty dishes out overnigh.
• Don’t leave fruit on the countertop.
• Empty garbage bins and vacuum& mop frequently
• Keep the house clean!

Ground Spiders Pest Control method

Ground spiders tend to be difficult to treat, as they hide in burrows, and are constantly on the move. Normally more than 1 treatment is required for ground spiders.

If you are in a position to purchase some miniature chickens or ducks then do so as this is an alternative treatment method because the chickens and ducks are able to find spiders and kill them.

Treatment Areas When Treating for Spiders

Roof: Dust/powder is sprayed into the roof cavity by the means of a dust gun. The technician will use a ladder to access the roof cavity through the manhole and the dust will be spread throughout this area.
Internal: An internal barrier spray will be applied to the skirting boards throughout the house. All rooms will be treated with the skirting board spray. Dust may also be applied to any cracks & crevices within the house.
If you have red back spiders or white tail spiders inside the house the technician will let off additional smoke bombs.

Sub Floor: Dust/powder will sprayed into the area under the house
External: Spray will be applied to the following areas: Around windows, Gutters, fascia’s etc, Garage, Sheds, Pathways, Fence line, Laundry, Weep holes, Cracks and crevices and Telstra pits. If you have an issue with ground spiders chemical will be applied to all ground external areas as a blanket spray which is similar to colouring in the backyard areas with chemical.
How does the spider Pest treatment work?
The spray that is used for spiders also covers you for other pests such as large cockroaches, carpet beetles silverfish, creamy coloured crickets and any existing wasp nests.
The spray and dust method used for spiders not only eradicates the current population but will also provide a longer term protection as a residual protection is formed.
If you are having an issue with red back spiders or white tail spiders internally we use the smoke bombs as the general rule with spiders is, that you have to spray a spider directly in order eradicate them. The fumigation is able to get into places the normal spray will not such as under couches, behind heavy or hard to move cabinets and cluttered rooms.

As the chemical needs to come directly in contact with the spider for it to die, ground spider treatments may need to be done on a regular basis especially if you are in a known area for ground spiders.
Preparing for a Spider treatment
Internally: Clean up internally,limit the clutter within the house as having a cluttered house can introduce pests to your home and become a harbourage area for pests. limit paper goods and throw out cardboard boxes.Wipe down countertops, under your appliances to remove any food scraps and wipe down any open jars of honey, syrups, sugars.
If you need to get the additional treatment of smoke bombs you will be required to vacate the property for 6hrs after they have been let off and also air the house out well before bringing kids or pets back into the house.
If you are having a ground spider treatment done, pets should be kept away from the treated areas for up to 4hrs.
Externally:Mow the lawns , limit your garbage outside, clean up the backyard area and pack away kids or pet toys.
What to Expect After a spidertreatment
Spiders will be flushed out and will continue to be flushed out over the next 6 weeks. Spiders around windows will be reduced by 80-90% and red backs should be reduced by 90-100% depending on initial severity. If you have had a severe red back issue, we suggest another external treatment 3 months after the first treatment which would assist in removing any new population build ups. If you live in a bushy suburb and a lot of trees around the property, You will never stop spiders 100%.

• Near bushland,
• Have many trees in the backyard,
• Overgrown garden

In saying this, we have found that clients, whom have a regular pest service, tend to have less reoccurrence of spider issues.
